The reprogramming of DNA methylation in early embryos has been considered to be essential for the reprogramming of differentiated parental genomes to totipotency, the transcription of embryonic genome activation (EGA) and subsequent development. However, its degree appears to differ as a function of species and it may be altered by the in vitro environment. While the rabbit is a pertinent model for species with a delayed EGA because both in vivo and in vitro developed embryos are easily… CONTINUE READING
